Allow me to be your journey companion

When it comes to weddings, I am all there. I want to celebrate with you, cry alongside you, and toast to the adventure and joy of marriage with you. All while capturing your story in the most honest way I can. I may even be convinced to join you on the dance floor after my work is done, that’s up to you. I have the best job in the entire world because I get to have a front row seat to the happiest day of your life

I will not place you in poses that make you feel uncomfortable or force moments, I want to capture your unique, sometimes weird love. I believe the journey of starting your lives together is an adventure of its own, and it would be an honor to be your companion and join you. on your journey. I won’t just be your photographer; I’ll be a new friend. If you feel I may be a good fit for your story, whether it be a wedding, family session, or travel project, shoot me an email. Let's grab a coffee and get to know each other.


Some quick bar trivia about me:

  1. You can find my mom and I on the Ellen Show; click here to read our story and click here to watch our segment!

  2. I have an incredible partner named Zachariah; he's a high school choir director and professional singer. He's also the man of my dreams and he can grow a better beard than I can.

  3. I’m a newly graduated pediatric occupational therapist (because kids are rad) and I’m working towards specializing in evidence-based practice, early intervention, and feeding.

  4. 80’s music is my favorite, especially Journey and the Outfield.

  5. I’m as much of an optimist as I am a thrill seeker.

  6. My drink of choice is a glass of white wine; sauvignon blanc nearly always.

  7. At the top of my bucket list is adopting a golden retriever and naming them Paddington; I really want to be a dog dad.

  8. What’s my Harry Potter house, you ask? Gryffindor, with hints of Hufflepuff.

Christine & Jon

"Working with Bryden Giving is one of the easiest aspects about planning a wedding. He was very on top of all the logistics and was extremely flexible to fit into our wedding day exactly how we wanted. More than that, Bryden cares about the couple he is photographing and takes the time before hand to get to know them so that he is best able to capture their day. Simply put, when you decide to have Bryden be your wedding photographer (which is the best decision) you are not only getting a photographer but..."
